We start with a population crash, as usual. After that, the populations almost look like they stabilize. Less than half of our species have gone extinct.

As you might guess, the Barnicle is an invincible Detritus eater and the Deepwater Devourer is a carnivore. However, the Deepwater Devourer is not an apex predator. It has only 3 Attack and 6 speed. (It also has Antivenom and the ability to consume Detritus.)

Generations 25-100

Barnicles dominate.

Generations 100-1000

Most of our species die out leaving only Barnicles, Spanish Beards and Tillis.

You can't see it in the above graph but a few Soonbegons trickle in to compete for Detritus.

The Barnicle and Spanish Beard are identicle invincible detritivores. The Tilli occupies a slightly different niche by foraging for Carrion too.
